Created on May 13, 2019




This course, presented by Texas oil and gas law attorney Joshua Stein, covers some of the common issues that Texas urban and rural surface owners face in oil and gas development. It is intended to be an introductory course for general practitioners with little oil and gas experience. The program will provide a helpful overview of surface use agreements, easements, roads, and pipelines. These areas are of importance to real estate practitioners, but also of particular importance to oil & gas attorneys and title examiners. Finally, the program will discuss the state's plan to protect the soon-to-be extinct sagebrush lizard.
